  1. Hi again what's the difference between lakes in looking for a few fish in the 20s if possible. What would you recommend? Thanks
  2. Not too bad then thanks. I am a carp angler but all the rules I follow any way back home when I'm carping so there isn't much difference. What lake is best to fish in your opinion?
  3. Hi, we got an email about the rules, I didnt think it was that bad tbh. What sizes are in there please? And yeah I've read from other places that cheese has done well thanks. It's not really a fishing holiday just a general holiday but it co insides with fishing so I'll give it a go. Cheers Raph
  4. Hi all, im going to berny riviere for my holiday this year and it has two fishing lakes with big carp in apparently. Has anyone fished there and if so any tips or advice would be appreciated! Cheers Raph
  5. Just got back only fished it once was too expensive and was fully booked as I didn't know you had to book didn't find Tom too helpful at time fished places around the IOW which were miles better. Few people did well some 30s and late 20s but fish were usually battered or had soures or cuts on them
  6. Thanks did you get any and what's the smaller pond like at last resort?
  7. Hi, going to rookley park in the Isle of Wight and fishing the large lake as ive heard the average size is 25lb! Has anyone fished it any information would be great. Thanks
  8. I use Barbless even if they allow barbs, less damage to the fish, don't lose that many anyway, no need for barbed in my opinion
  9. Thanks! n yeah it does. I had 6 carp on Monday between 8-19lb Ghostie and theyre a lot cheaper then the usual 10-12 quid a bag. I made them following what it said on the link below with a few changes so like one of the list of ingredients you posted http://www.fishforcarp.com/html/make%20boilies.htm
  10. caught on the homemade boilies caught 2 about 7lb and lost one, so not too bad!
  11. im trying em on Monday ill let you know how they do
  12. Made my first batch came out better then expected wasn't perfect shape as I hand rolled em I would upload a photo if I knew how. Halibut, chilli, strawberry and some red predator liquid. Made my mam boke so must be alright [/img]
  13. I agree pearbo love my shimano reel ive got the 5000 series or something. n Yeah matt they aren't the best but they will do but most of lakes around me are pretty cheap so I don't have that issue £15 max for night fishing of what im aware of
  14. I bought a rod of dragon carp for a £10 for a spare 2.75lb test curve and I wasn't too optimistic but I have caught many fish on it including my pb of over 20lb with no problem, yes its not the best like a bit 'whippy' when casting but for what I need it for it perfect and have bought some accessories from there and is spot on, so if any one is just starting up or looking to get some gear on the cheap then I highly recommend it! Anyone else got any bargains worth shouting about?
  15. Ill give it a go over the weekend. Have no idea what im doing but ill figure it out
  16. Thanks, ill give it a go cant do as bad as what im doing on the bank recently id rather not catch on my own bait than something ive payed a tenner for at least then I have an excuse
  17. Hi, Wondered if anyone has any good homemade boilie recipes or other baits they wouldn't mind sharing? Cheers
  18. Hi the best chances of catching at rainbow are to use surface baits when it's sunny, or I know the boilies that they sell there work well. The better swims are 1,4,19,21. I'm going for a couple of days tomorrow ill let you know how I get on, and got to get a breakfast in the morning they're good! I really like the lake scenic but hard to catch John the bailiff is a nice bloke and the fish I have seen been caught have been immaculate as they take very good care of the fish and the lake
